All requirements within this policy will be strictly enforced. In order to attend their regular classes, students will be required to be in full compliance with this policy.

Elementary Dress Code (Grades K-5)

The dress and grooming standards of the Frisco Independent School District are meant to promote a positive, professional learning environment where the focus is on instruction and not on clothing. Clothing, hairstyles and accessories should not be disruptive, immodest or compromise student safety.

Students shall come to school looking clean, neat, and ready to learn. The District prohibits pictures, emblems or writings on materials or clothing that are lewd, offensive, vulgar, immodest or promote or refer to alcoholic beverages, drugs or any other substance prohibited under policy FNCF (1).

The following statements serve as guidelines so that there is no question of what is acceptable:

  • "Sagging pants" are not allowed. Jeans, slacks, shorts and all other pants must be worn at or about the waist at all times. Even if a shirt is extremely long, the pants must be worn at the waist. Undergarments should not be visible at any time.

  • Inappropriate exercise clothing will not be allowed without an appropriate covering garment.

  • Pants and other articles of clothing that are torn, ragged, frayed or pants with holes are not permitted.

  • Sunglasses, caps, hats, bandanas, and other headwear are not to be brought into the building.

  • Hairstyles or unnatural hair colors that, in the judgment of the school administrator, cause a disruption of the educational environment are not allowed.

  • Clothing should be worn for the purpose for which it was designed. No undergarments or pajamas are to be worn as outerwear.

  • Shoes must be worn at all times; house shoes are not permitted. Tennis shoes must be worn in physical education classes. Shoes with wheels are not allowed. We discourage students from wearing flip-flops as these types of shoes can pose a hazard on the playground.

  • Earrings are permissible. All other visible body-piercing jewelry or ornaments are prohibited.

  • Reasonable standards of modesty must be met.

  • Students may not wear colored hair paint or colored gel or have hair in an unnatural color.

Boys

  • Shirts with sleeves must be worn at all times.

  • Shorts that extend to or below the students‘ fingertips when their arms are held to their sides are acceptable.

Girls

  • Sleeveless tops with a minimum width of two-inch wide straps are acceptable. The shirt straps must be wide enough to cover undergarments.

  • See-through, bare midriff, halter type, shoulder-baring, spaghetti strap blouses or any revealing or low-cut clothing is not permitted. Shirt hems should extend well below the waist of pants/shorts/skirts in a sitting or standing position.

  • Dresses, skirts and shorts must extend to or below the students‘ fingertips when their arms are held to their sides. This applies also to skirts and shorts worn with leggings.

  • Tights, leggings, jeggings, and other form-fitting pants must be worn with shirts, skirts, or shorts that extend to fingertip length.

Students in violation of the student dress and grooming code will be expected to change to appropriate attire (provided by the school) when violations are brought to their attention. Students will not be allowed to leave campus for the purpose of changing clothes. Students who fail to meet this requirement of compliance with the Dress and Grooming Code may spend the remainder of the day in In-School Suspension.

Students who persistently violate the dress code may be held to a higher dress standard. Students are expected to be in compliance with the dress code at any school-related event or activity; school officials have the authority to ask them to leave if they are inappropriately dressed.

Note: The principal, in connection with the sponsor, coach or other person in charge of an extracurricular activity, may regulate the dress and grooming of students who participate in the activity and may impose higher standards.
